UT – Unbeatable Squirrel Girl: 2 Fuzzy 2 Furious Signing

Shannon Hale and Dean Hale appear at the Provo City Library on Tuesday, March 20, 2018 at 7:00 PM to present and sign The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl: 2 Fuzzy 2 Furious, the newest novel in their Squirrel Girl series.

Doreen Green, age fourteen, is a little too busy wiping out crime in her suburban New Jersey neighborhood to focus on her overdue homework. That’s because she also happens to be Squirrel Girl, a bushy-tailed, squirrel-powered Super Hero! After foiling the nefarious plot of an amateur Super Villain, Squirrel Girl is finally finding her groove–and group texting with the Avengers, like, all the time. Doreen, on the other hand, is still trying to navigate friendships, evil teachers, and all the pitfalls that come with middle school. (Seriously, it’s complicated.)

An announcement goes out that sends waves of excitement through the community: There’s a new mall opening on the border of Shady Oaks and neighboring town Listless Pines, and they all get to vote on the mall’s mascot! Everyone goes wild over the election . . . a little too wild, if you ask Squirrel Girl and her BHFF (Best Human Friend Forever), Ana Sofia. Soon the two towns are at war–even the trusty Squirrel Scouts are going berserk. Is there something sinister at work in Shady Oaks? Something that has less to do with quality shopping choices and more to do with world domination? And will Squirrel Girl be able to unleash the furry paws of justice in time to save the day?

UT – Islandborn Signing

Artist Junot Díaz and illustrator Leo Espinosa appear at the Rowland Hall Upper School on Friday, March 23rd at 7:00 PM to present and sign ISLANDBORN!

The purchase of a $20 Family Ticket from The King’s English Bookshop includes a copy of Islandborn and general admission seating for up to four people. Tickets go on sale now!

Pulitzer Prize-winning author Junot Díaz’s first foray into children’s books is an ode to the power of our imaginations to connect us to the past. In Islandborn, young Lola, who was born in the Dominican Republic and lives in New York City, is asked by her teacher to draw a picture of her home country, except that she moved from the Island as a baby and does not remember it at all. She turns to her family members and asks them to share their stories. She learns about their happiest moments in the Dominican Republic, as well as the darker parts of the country’s history. Through their anecdotes, she creates her drawing. Islandborn touches on immigration, struggling to find a place of belonging, and identity.

Lavishly illustrated by Utah artist Leo Espinosa, this picture book will delight the entire family.

Junot Díaz won the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Critics Circle Award for The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao. He is also the author of the story collections Drown and the National Book Award finalist This Is How You Lose Her. He serves as fiction editor at Boston Review and professor of creative writing at MIT. His many honors include a MacArthur Fellowship, induction into the American Academy of Arts and Letters, and the Dayton Literary Peace Prize.

Leo Espinosa is an award-winning illustrator and designer from Bogotá, Colombia. His work has been featured in a variety of mediums, including The New Yorker, Wired, Esquire, The New York Times, Chronicle Books, Nickelodeon, Swatch, Hasbro, American Greetings, and Coca-Cola. Leo has served as faculty member at Rhode island School of Design and his illustrations have been recognized by American Illustration, Communication Arts, Pictoplasma, 3×3, and awarded with Gold and Silver Medals from The Society of Illustrators. He lives with his family in Park City, Utah.

UT – The House Launch Party

Drew Zucker and Phillip Sevy are kicking off their tour for their new horror comic “The House” this Saturday, February 3rd at Black Cat Comics.
They’ll be selling and signing copies of The House here from 11:00 AM – 2:00 PM!

The first twenty customers to purchase The House at each store will get free, exclusive Mini Prints with art from Jorge Corona, Morgan Beem, Dave Stoll: Comic Artist, Roberta Ingranata, and Eryk Donovan Art.

The House is a critically acclaimed 7-issue horror series that follows a squad of US soldiers in the Battle of the Bulge during World War II who get lost in the snowy woods. As the storm becomes worse, they happen upon an abandoned mansion that they take refuge in. But once the door closes, they begin to notice that things aren’t right. As night falls, they realize that they may be in more danger if they stay, but when they go to leave, the front door is no longer there. Then things get worse from there…

Created by Drew Zucker and Phillip Sevy (with fantastic colors by Jen Hickman and amazing letters by Frank Cvetkovic), The House is a culmination of seven years worth of work and now, finally, available in a beautiful trade paperback!
